Understanding General Negligence
As human beings living in a civilized society, we are expected to act with a certain level of caution and care for the safety of others. This applies in virtually any personal or professional setting. Negligence may be defined as a failure to act with proper caution or care under the circumstances. It may be further described as doing something that a reasonable person in the same circumstances would not have done or failing to do something that a reasonable person in the same circumstances would have done.
When negligent conduct causes injury to another person, the injured party may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against the responsible person or entity. That person or company may be held legally responsible for their act or failure to act and may be required to pay a certain amount of
financial compensation to the victim.
This compensation is meant to help the victim rebuild his or her life to a similar condition as it was in before the injury occurred.
